Empowering Lives

Dragonfly Ranch is committed to the belief that adults with developmental and intellectual differences are valuable assets to our communities. These individuals need to be provided with opportunities after they age out of the school system. Dragonfly Ranch will support these individuals build self-esteem to encourage them to reach their full potential. We will guide them in building confidence and increase their independence through goal oriented activities.

Dragonfly Ranch wants to extend the learning skills of individuals by providing them with a safe space where they can make choices. Dragonfly Ranch wants to help families and caregivers build up their loved one's abilities so that they are contributing at home. We want to ensure they have the skills to be safe.

The skills we will be focusing on are as follows, but not limited to:

  • Fine/gross motor skills
  • Telling time
  • Time management
  • Counting money
  • Maintaining focus
  • Minimizing verbal/physical prompts
